Kiaora/ Malo e Lelei
Welcome to the last Special Character newsletter for Term 3. We thank you Lord, for this term. For the challenges, the successes, and the mistakes from which we have learnt. Be with us as we spend our time with family and friends. Give us strength and courage to do what is right, to be witnesses of our faith. Keep us safe: give us good rest and good fun. Bring us back refreshed and ready for a new term. We thank you for our friends, teachers, parents and our community that cares for us. May we always be conscious of you in our lives. Amen

21st St Matthew
Thank you for this holiday—an extra chance for fun and play.
There’s so much I can learn and do even if I’m not in school.
All the beauty and gifts abound. The world you created is all around.
Today’s a chance to go explore, try new things, and discover more.
I’ll miss my teacher and my friends just as it happens on weekends.
But I know that for today, I’m thankful for this holiday.
